Best Resort we chose for our Honeymoon break. On arrival we got a warm welcome from staff/managers, a cold face towel, juice and a delicious cookie! Staff made us feel at home right from the start. Agent did not notify the Resort that the trip was for a honeymoon stay and still we received all the goodies. (Room Upgrade, Massage,...

It faces the most beautiful beach of Zanzibar, a gift! Only very annoying thing: the vendors on the beach,constantly trying to capture your attention for selling you boat trips or others, all day long no one...

My friend and I went to Zanzibar for her birthday celebration. She wanted to a cheap vacation but I wanted luxury. Double tree was the perfect middle ground due to price, amenities and location.

Stayed here for a whole week, by myself. Loved every second of it. The food in Fisherman's Grill restaurant is absolutely amazing -- you must try the coconut crab soup and the blackened tuna in saffron sauce. DELICIOUS. It belongs to the hotel, so it's just a 1 min walk away from wherever you are. The managers are extremely nice...
